Samsung is working on a security option relating to fingerprints.
Consumer Reports have just crowned a new king in the smartphone world. The impressive new Samsung GALAXY S 4, which has only been available about a month, has already knocked down the previous top pick. The LG Optimus G has held the position for quite some time due to the specs, features, and price all bundled into one, but Samsung changed it all.
UK pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and while Samsung has also said the handset would be released for those in Europe and Russia, we haven't heard anything official in terms of a US release. With that in mind, recent rumors are suggesting the handset will be coming available with AT&T. While this may be good news for AT&T users looking for a massively oversized smartphone, there are some lingering questions.
LG Optimus F3 for the Now Network. This budget-friendly smartphone has leaked on Twitter from the usual @evleaks, and a few of the details have been revealed. LG first announced their new F series at Mobile World Congress, and now it looks like the low-end is headed to a few US carriers soon.
Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Mega back in mid-April. That announcement included word of a 6.3-inch and a 5.8-inch smartphone and while we haven't seen much for either model since, it looks like some pricing has been detailed for the Mega 6.3. The details are coming by way of UK retailer Clove who have the handset listed for pre-order with an expected shipping date sometime in July.
Google took the stage at their I/O developer event last week and shocked the crowd and Android world by announcing the Samsung GALAXY S 4 Google Edition running stock Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Unlocked, developer friendly, and available from the Play Store. Immediately many started wondering if the same was coming from HTC. Would you buy a Google Edition HTC One?
OUYA game-console at $99 vs the Xbox 360 isn't really what we'd consider fair. They are two entirely different platforms operating at very different levels. However, with the new Xbox on the horizon today we found ourselves wondering if Android will soon be able to compete with the Xbox, if ever. And we'd love to hear your thoughts too.
GALAXY S 4 may be the latest from Samsung, it doesn't change the fact that the Galaxy S III is still a rather capable handset. With that in mind, it looks like the Galaxy S III will be launching with two additional carriers in June. The carriers include Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile, however at present neither have announced the pricing.
Kickstarter, however given the financial success of the campaign and the delays that followed -- it is the one many seem to remember. Anyway, while shipping delays with the Pebble appear to be coming to an end, there is another smartwatch that has recently appeared on Kickstarter. This latest is called the AGENT and they are coming forward with an expected shipping timeframe of December 2013.
Google took the stage last week at their annual Google I/O developer event, many were extremely excited to see they'll be offering a stock Nexus-like Samsung GALAXY S 4 in the Play Store. We're sure many of you Android faithful around the world were quite excited to hear the news as well, but sadly it looks like the device might end up being a U.S. exclusive. At least for the first few months.
